If you’ve been following our spooktacular Halloween cocktail concoctions (and we hope you have!), you’ve seen the Scary Bloody Mary, the (dangerous, but lovely) Josephine, and the (fan favorite) Pumpkin Spice Martini. As Halloween is right around the corner, we thought we would kill this series (see what I did there) with another fun treat. Meet the Graveyard!

Typically known as a Reverse Manhattan, this delicious Halloween cocktail will keep those goblins & ghouls coming back for more! So whether you are laying low or hosting a monster mash, the Graveyard is a must have. The best part? It’s made with the oldest whiskey in America! Don’t worry, it won’t break the bank but it will impress your friends & your taste buds. In fact, that’s why we love it. Killer flavor for a steal – we are in! See the full recipe & get inspired to make your own below…


-2 oz. vermouth (preferably Foro)
-1 oz. rye whiskey (preferably Michter’s)
-2 dashes Angostura bitters
-1 Amarena cherry


-Pour your Foro vermouth, Michter’s rye whiskey, and  bitters in an ice-filled shaker

-Stir gently

-Strain into an old-fashioned glass with a large ice cube; garnish with an Amarena cherry

-Serve, sip, repeat!
